3D Laser cutting of long member
Not all holes in a truck chassis rail or long member can be punched by a flexible punching line or a static stamping press (press punching line). Larger openings might be necessary to allow passage of cable trees or hydraulic connections. Cut-outs might be needed to allow space for truck axles or drivetrains. Specials shapes may be needed to accommodate the requirements for truck electrification or hydrogen fuel cells.
Soenen has developed a solution to allow 3D laser cutting the long member which can be seamlessly integrated into existing production processes. The long members are handled & verified in the same fashion as with our punching solution. For laser cutting the chassis rail, Soenen has opted to cooperate with the world leader in laser technology. The laser source of choice is a high performance high power disk fiber laser.
When compared to existing plasma cutting solutions and conventional CO2 laser cutting, the use of the fiber laser technology provides a cleaner, faster and more energy efficient cutting solution.
